In the mid 90's, Mr Farley moved into British international education; first as a senior manager with responsibility for curriculum development, then as founding Head of a new British Embassy school in Qatar. During his tenure, the school expanded rapidly, opening three new sites and growing to 850 students (remarkably, it now has 3,000 students on roll). In August 2003 he joined The British School in Tokyo as Head Master. During his six year headship, the School developed a reputation for strong academic standards within a caring and inclusive ethos and was adjudged 'outstanding' when inspected. The School also opened a second site and expanded its student role significantly.
Mr Farley next became Principal of The Junior and Senior School, Nicosia, Cyprus, where he led the redevelopment of the school's historic site and several initiatives to improve educational and pastoral support for the students.
During his time in international education, Mr Farley has been active in a regional capacity, as an executive member of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME) and founding trustee responsible for professional development for the Federation of British International Schools or South East Asia (FOBISSEA).
Speaking of his decision to join the School, Mr Farley commented
‘’I am thrilled to be joining Harrow as Head Master at such an exciting stage of its development. In talking to students, parents and members of staff, it is evident to me that the School is thriving; much excellent work has gone in to getting the school to this point. It's now a time to look to a bright future, with Harrow Bangkok further developing its distinctive curriculum and outstanding facilities’’
